Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our nursing score is mostly based on the facility's nurse staffing. With 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this facility was above the national average. Finally, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, it fared as well as any nursing home the nation in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these metrics as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home received a strong short-term care score as well. We gave it one of our better grades in that area with a score of B+. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more critical for those in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we assessed was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B. This nursing home turned out to be very solid across the board. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
